Malkin got an $800k raise when he could have EASILY gotten $11M on the open market, possibly max salary. Which would have been a $2.3M-$3.5M raise.

And those two players happen to be the best in the world. Not exactly Drury and Gomez.

Who were on the team already... Handed to the franchise on a silver platter.

Maybe not, but he do have one of the best player of this generation under contract for another eight years.

If they got into seriously cap problem he could always trade him for... idk vey much.

However he doesn't deserve to be priced as the best GM.

Did Barry Melrose just ask Harding if his teammates laughed at him for having MS?

Key Arena is pretty terrible for hockey after they gutted it in early 90's to make it that way

Only way NHL should allow move to Seattle is if they have ironclad guarantee a new arena will happen

As of right now Seattle arena is still just a dream ,, not a certainty

They could use it as an interim arena while they have one more suitable for hockey built, perhaps?

The Memorandum of Understanding with the city on the arena build can be modified to allow the NHL team there first, without the guarantee of an NBA team. That's according to the guy who wants to build it and is the other party in the MOU, Chris Hansen. It's really not a difficult process if Hansen is open to is and he is publicly so. If the NHL wants Seattle, an arena will get built.

Besides, the feeling out there is that expansion WILL be happening in the NBA and it WILL be to Seattle, likely for 15-16.

If they showed up, the team probably wouldn't be leaving.

The Coyotes problems had practically nothing to do with fan support.

They`ve had other issues, but their attendance has been at or near the bottom of the league for the last few years.

Stepan 9th in Selke voting, BEHIND Callahan.

Shero GM of the year, ridiculous. He has failed to build a team around the top 2 forwards in the league.

agreed, don't know how he won that over bergevin for example, he rebuilt that team and got them into the playoffs after missing it the year before and they were the #3 seed (won their division).

No. 2 even. They won the division with the strong Bruins chasing them, finishing well ahead of Washington on the log (who were the no. 3 seed).

Shero has done nothing that warrants an award like this. He signs Crosby and Malkin to albatros contracts, but they were drafted before he got the job as GM.

And people seem to forget he gave Fleury 5m/y, the worst contract in the NHL

I don't see this at all

Many markets in NBA are struggling right now

The Bucks for instance have been struggling for years and are likely next target for Seattle or KC in pursuit of team

I'm basing my idea on what's been reported surrounding that situation since the Kings possibility fell away. Not just putting out theories.

When will the remaining awards be handed out? I know the Conn Smythe trophy will be at the end of the SC finals, but what about the Vezina trophy? Do we have to wait a whole 2 weeks for that?
